The new deal for the debt ceiling will affect several federal benefits for millions of Americans.
New Deal for Debt Ceiling Will Impact Student Loan Payment and Other Federal Benefits
Following the passing of the new bill, the new deal for the debt ceiling is expected to affect student loan payments and several federal programs, including the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP).
According to several reports, the new deal will address the issues on the debt limit by suspending the debt ceiling until 2025, which will reportedly affect several federal benefits instead of giving the citizens relief.
The new deal for the debt ceiling might end the student loan payments for millions of borrowers and will also affect other programs, including the work requirements for SNAP beneficiaries, Money reported.
Suspending the Debt Ceiling Will Affect Several Beneficiaries of Federal Relief Programs
Despite the good intentions of the new deal, suspending the debt ceiling will negatively affect several beneficiaries as it will delay the payments to be received, including Medicaid, SNAP, Social Security, and other federal payments in the state.
However, if Congress would fail to suspend the debt ceiling until the given deadline, the economic devastation will hurt the state and the residents more.
